Place ratings

Ratings are a great way to find the best possible places nearby for that hot date, dim sum dinner, or spa extravaganza. When you visit a business listing on Foursquare City Guide, you'll notice a number on the right-hand side – an out-of-10 rating to help you identify which places are great, and those that could be better. You'll also see a more humanized version, like:

  • People like this place. 
  • People have mixed feelings about this place. 
  • People don’t really like this place.

A place’s rating is based on a number of signals that we’ve gathered from our social data mines; likes and dislikes, and positive versus negative tips. Not all pages will have ratings – sometimes this is because of the type of place, and other times, we haven’t gathered enough information to give you an educated rating just yet. So when you like/dislike a business or leave a tip, you're actively contributing to that score!
